The Reign of Christ. Book Two. Chapter Forty Eight: The Eighth Law: the Civil Education of Youth and the Suppression of Idleness

Not only every private person but also every state and commonwealth should educate, form, and train its children for him with utmost care, and adapt each of them to those skills and activites for which the Lord himself has created each to be most suited; thus each person, as a sound and useful member in the body of the commonwealth, may contribute his share also to the good of the entire commonwealth, and no idle person may feed as a drone on the labors of others.
